ORBAT is a military acronym for Order of Battle. Technically speaking, Order of Battle is the identification of command structure, strength, and disposition of personnel, equipment, and units of the military of a protagonist. Or, simply put, it is an account of the strengths and assets of a would-be combatant force.
Unless pulled back, the world is now at the very brink of entering one grizzly global battle. The battle ground is the Middle East. And the two chief adversaries in this upcoming battle are the Muslims and the Western forces marshaled by the Zionist Jews.
So it is basically going to be a clash between the Zionist Jews and the Muslims. While these two opponents may possibly be fighting for their individual ideologies, the Western forces, with United States of America in the lead, are in for more than that. As a spin-off benefit, they are also eyeing the still massive, though fast dwindling, energy resources buried beneath the burning sands of the Middle East.
The tangible military ORBATs of the rivals can easily be found at the Jane’s Defence Manual and is outside the scope of this piece. It is the intangible ORBATs of the rivals that the scribe needs to highlight.
Here are these ORBATs of the two main adversaries. As the Zionists draw their strength from the world Jewry, so first, the Jews’.
Of foremost interest is the intriguing fact as to how the tiny Jewish world populace, only 14 million on the entire planet, has the almost 1.4 billion Muslim mass of this same planet like a rabbit in a boa constrictor’s choking hold.
Part answer to that, of course, is that they do it with the help of the Goliath, the US of A, whom they now have on a leash. Here is a brief list of just some of the prominent Jews who are, or have been in the recent past, in positions of power and influence in the US government.
For a 6 million Jewish population of America, there are/were;
Two US Presidential Candidates i.e. Senator John Kerry and Wesley Clark.
Eleven US Senators i.e. Frank Lautenberg, Joseph Lieberman, Barbara Boxer , Norm Coleman, Russ Feingold, Dianne Feinstein , Herbert Lehman, Carl Levin, Charles Schumer, Paul Wellstone and Arlen Specter.
Ten US Secretaries of State of various governmental departments and a Federal Reserve Chairman i.e. Henry Kissinger, Madeline Albright, Robert Rubin, Spencer Abraham, William Cohen, Henry Morgenthau, Robert Reich, Abe Ribicoff, Lewis Schwellenbach, Paul Wolfowitz (Deputy Defense Secretary) and Alan Greenspan.
Eleven US Congressmen and women i.e. Bella Abzug, Vic Berger, Eliot Engel, Barney Frank, Steve Israel, Jerry Nadler, Henry Waxman, Anthony Weiner, Robert Wexler, Steve Rothman and Brad Sherman.
Seven US Supreme Court Justices i.e. Louis Brandeis, Stephen Breyer, Benjamin Cardozo, Abe Fortas, Felix Frankfurter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Arthur Goldberg.
Two White House Press Secretaries i.e. Ari Fleischer and Ron Ziegler.
But wait. Before the Muslim conspiracy theorists jump up and exclaim, “See, we told you so!” and blame all their miseries on the above mentioned fact, something else needs to be highlighted too. And that is that the Jews did not reach these positions by a quirk of fate. They worked at it.
They worked hard at it while the Muslims were busy wrangling over the procedural differences of their prayers, the methods of ablution and the lengths of their beards, banning kite flying and television, and spawning the limb chopping, women beating Taliban on the side.
Please keep in mind that just 0.2 % of the world population is Jewish. The paucity of space does not allow a full list of their achievements. Yet, consider the following;
From the Jewish faith, there are 95 Nobel Prize winners in Science and medicine, 16 Nobel Prize winners in economics and 12 Nobel Laureates in literature (another 68 are Pulitzer Prize winners).
In other words, in the sciences alone, this miniscule fraction of humanity has won 22 percent of all the Nobel Prizes ever awarded - 29 percent of the prizes since 1950, after the Holocaust drastically reduced their numbers. Given their small population, Jews should have earned only one of the 502 Nobels awarded for physics, chemistry, medicine and physiology. They have won 123.
As economists they are specially gifted. They have earned 38 percent of all Nobel Prizes for economics and 67 percent of the John Clarke Bates Medals for talented economists under age 40. They were influential in the creation of the Federal Reserve System in the USA and have headed it for twenty-five of the last thirty-five years.
Likewise, Jews have earned 11 percent of the Nobel prizes for literature and 20 percent of the Pulitzer Prizes for nonfiction.
The Fields Medal, awarded to the world’s brightest mathematicians under age 40, is the honor John Nash, of the book and movie ‘A Beautiful Mind’ had hoped to win. Instead, he took a Nobel Prize in economics as a consolation prize. One-fourth of the Fields Medals winners are Jews.
Of the 267 individual inventors listed in Encyclopedia Britannica, more than 13 were Jews. Jews are represented on the list 22 times more than one would expect based on their population.
Similarly, in politics, they are 11 percent of the United States Senate and 6 percent of the House of Representatives at any given time. They were 42 percent of the 100 largest political donors to the 2000 election cycle, and since 1917, when Judge Louis Brandeis was appointed, 17 percent of Supreme Court justices have been Jews.
Of the 2003 CEOs of Fortune’s 100 largest companies, 10 to 15 percent are Jews. Of Fortune’s 2003 list of the twenty-five most powerful people in business, six (24 percent) are Jews. Of the thirty entrepreneurs included in the 2004 Fortune “America’s 40 Richest Under 40,” at five of the top ten are Jewish as are 23 percent of the Forbes 400.
Jews were generally not allowed to own real estate outside the ghetto for the better part of 1,800 years. They have compensated by becoming a major force in development and management of property all over the world. Of the five largest Real Estate Investment Trusts listed by Forbes magazine in May 2002, four were headed by Jews.
That is not all. The Jews created the world’s largest and most valuable computer company (Dell, Michael Dell), co-founded the world’s most successful search engine (Google, Sergey Brin), head the world’s largest software company (Microsoft, Steve Ballmer), co-founded and head the world’s second largest software company (Oracle, Lawrence Ellison), co-founded, led and serve as chairman of the world’s dominant microprocessor and memory chip company (Intel, Andrew Grove) and served as CEO or COO at three of the world’s four most valuable Internet companies (Yahoo, Terry Semel; eBay, Jeff Skoll; and IAC, Barry Diller). Equally, almost all the media giants are owned by the Jews. One needs to stop for shortness of breath. The list runs long.
And here is the Muslims’ ORBAT.
For starters, following are some highlights of Dr. Farrukh Saleem’s stellar piece ‘Why the Muslims are so Powerless’.
“There are an estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of the planet. Every fifth human being is a Muslim and for every Jew there are one hundred Muslims.
…There are 57 member-countries of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), and all of them put together have around 500 universities; one university for every three million Muslims. The United States has 5,758 universities and India has 8,407. In 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong University compiled an ‘Academic Ranking of World Universities’, and intriguingly, not one university from Muslim-majority states was in the top-500.
…Muslim-majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims. The US has 4,000 scientists per million and Japan has 5,000 per million. In the entire Arab world, the total number of full-time researchers is 35,000 and there are only 50 technicians per one million Arabs (in the Christian world there are up to 1,000 technicians per one million). Furthermore, the Muslim world spends 0.2 per cent of its GDP on research and development, while the Christian world spends around five per cent of its GDP….”
For around a 3 million American Muslim population, the recently elected lone Muslim senator Keith Ellison is the first ever in US governmental history.
There are only two Muslim Nobel Prize winners in literature and two in science (not counting the Peace Nobels on either side as those are given more for political reasons than any other). There too, the first science Nobel winner, Professor Abdus Salam of Pakistan, was so hounded, dishonored and mistreated in Pakistan, for having a difference of faith with the majority, that he left for America never to return again.
In an earlier piece, the scribe had presented some highlights of the Arab Human Development Reports (AHDR). As the region forms the heartland of the Muslim world and is more resource rich than any other Muslim area, its political, economic and cultural matters would give an overall picture of the plight of the Muslim world at large.
According to these reports, the GDP [Gross Domestic Product] in all Arab countries combined stood at $531.2 billion in 1999, less than that of a single middle-size European country, Spain, ($595.5 billion). The state of information isolation is such that let alone fresh, indigenous writing and thinking, the figures for even translated books are gloomy. The Arab world translates about 330 books annually, one fifth of the number that Greece translates. In the 1,000 years since the reign of the Caliph Mamoun, the Arabs have translated as many books as Spain translates in just one year.
The use of the Internet is dreadfully low with only 0.5 per cent Arab population using state regulated Internet. Filmmaking appears to be declining. Newspapers circulate in the Middle East at one-fifth the rate of the developed world. Arabic books represent less than 1 percent of world production, even though Arabs make up 5 percent of world population.
Those, then, are the two ORBATs. The result of the clash is any body’s guess.
So lament on O Muslims and when you do awake from your numb slumber, ask of yourselves the same question that Mark Twain asked about Jews more than a hundred years back;
“…The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?”
